The UCLA Bruins suffered their second loss of the young college basketball season, losing 70-68 against Cal Poly at home on Sunday night.
The Bruins led by as many as 18 points in this contest before stumbling and coming up just short against the Mustangs.
Shabazz Muhammad led the Bruins with 15 points and 10 rebounds for his first collegiate double-double, but it wasn't enough.
The team's other star freshman Kyle Anderson had another terrible game, scoring just one point while turning the ball over twice and committing three fouls.
The Bruins should have ran away with this game, but poor rebounding cost the team once again.
Cal Poly's tallest player stands at just 6'9", while the Bruins have no less than seven players who are 6'9" or taller. The teams split the rebounds at 32-32, and Cal Poly's nine three-pointers led the Mustangs to a narrow victory on the road.
This was the second loss for the Bruins this week after falling to unranked Georgetown last Monday.
The Bruins entered the week ranked No. 11 in the country, but are now outside the Top 25 thanks to a 1-2 week.
Ben Howland's team has been struggling this season, which is bad news for the head coach.
Howland has been on the hot seat for nearly a year, and a slow start to the season can't help his standing with the school.
If UCLA can't find a way to turn things around before the Big Dance, Howland may be out of a job.
